Olympic Medallist Campbell Stewart makes his transition to road racing, joining the WorldTour peloton with Team BikeExchange for the 2022 & 2023 seasons.
The 23-year-old picked up the silver medal in the Omnium at the recent Tokyo Olympic Games, adding to his World Championship title in the event in 2019, displaying his wide-ranged skillset and sharp turn of speed on the track.
Stewart will be the fifth rider from New Zealand to join the Australian outfit and after his impressive results on the boards, the team is intrigued to see what he can achieve on the road given his remarkable strength and power.
Brent Copeland, General Manager on Stewart:
“Campbell is undoubtedly one of the world’s most extraordinary track cycling talents. His palmares speaks for itself with multiple world championship medals, plus a silver medal in the Omnium at the Tokyo Olympics. Campbell has also shown what he is capable of on the road as well, with two wins in France and a stage win in New Zealand this year.
Our team has always been attentive in our search for talent. For this reason, we have decided to offer him the opportunity to join our squad, confident that he will be able to continue his career as he starts to focus on the road.”
“I have been following GreenEDGE Cycling for years and I am excited to be joining. It’s an incredible opportunity for me and I will do everything possible to make it a success. Of course, I will need some time to adapt to the new environment, but I’m sure I will fit well with Team BikeExchange and the team spirit.
Between December and January I’ll begin to work with the staff and team members and I am really looking forward to learning as much as possible from everyone as I turn my attentions more to the road.”
